Passing late through Donostia-San Sebastian (Donostia is the Basque name for the city) by train, needed a bed for the night and Hotel Terminus did the job. Adjacent to mainline railway station so perfect location for me. Last person to check in, received friendly welcome and directed to top floor of three (stairs only), room at the front. Closed the double-glazed windows and curtains, put in my earplugs, didn't hear a car or train all night and slept reasonably well in the single bed.
The hotel is old and tired, along with its fixtures and fittings. Corridors are empty and echo. The room and en suite bathroom were adequate for my single night stopover. Breakfast, however, was a disappointment: I like a substantial breakfast while travelling but all that was on offer in the conjoined station café was just a coffee, orange juice and croissant. For those wanting something more, suggest a walk into the nearby city centre.
Having time to kill in the morning I strode across the nearby De Maria Cristina Zubia bridge and soon found myself in the city centre and before too long was looking out across the beautiful bay of La Concha with its immaculate beach. I quickly took a liking to the city and decided I would like to return and spend more time there ... but I wouldn't be staying at the Hotel Terminus.
